Update three – Belconnen office building evacuated

Fire crews have located the source of the smoke in a plant room on level four of the building.

The smoke came from a burned out motor that was only identified after removing a cover from it.

There are 80 plant rooms throughout the premises which all had to be checked.

Firefighters are now conducting atmospheric monitoring and will allow occupants back inside once air quality in the building returns to a safe level.
